Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise International — a health information technology and interoperability group — has released its "Mobile Access to Health Documents" implementation guide for public comment.

The guide aims to enable simplified access to health documents for patients and providers using mobile devices. According to the release, documents can be delivered using patient portals, electronic health records, personal health records or health information exchanges. The guide builds on earlier work and describes a simplified application programming interface to support access to health documents.

The guide is designed for the following:

•    Home health and health monitoring devices.
•    Patient kiosks used in hospital registration departments.
•    Personal health record applications publishing information to an EHR or HIE.
•    Patient or provider apps enabling access to or submission of medical history data.
